Lycan woke me up with, "'I' is for eyes!"
"No. 'E' for for eyes. The letter 'I' is for you."
"No. 'I' is for eyes, mommy. 'U' is for unicorn."
"No, Lycan. Eyes start with the letter 'E'."
"Mommy. 'I' is for eyes!"
"'E' is for eyes, Lycan. 'I' as yourself is a personal pronoun."
Matter of factly, "Mommy."
"'I' is for eye. Not 'E'. Not 'U'."
Sighs, "You're wrong, but you'll get it one day....maybe.
Welcome to American English, kid, the the rules are made up and the points don't matter."
Two months of home preschooling and it's going pretty well. Yesterday I was able to bump up both kids learning levels on ABC Mouse, so now they're more interested and learning at the right levels. I altnerate between the profile each day, so they're getting new stuff.
Wolfman can count from 1-20, 10-100 (by ten's), and 100-1000 (by hundreds). He can also recite the alphabet song, and he knows his letters and numbers. We've been playing double-digit card games. He counts everything around the house!
We also go over Stranger Danger, Street Safety, and Home Safety weekly.
Today we're going to start on sight words and possibly addition and subtraction.
As for Warrior, he's a little behind, but he's coming along. I think if I could school them individually, he'd do better. I just try to have them take turns on some of the games on ABC Mouse and offline.
But both are singing the songs they hear at random times. Warrior more than Wolfman--Warrior's more inclined to music than his brother.
Here's my pinterest board of some of the videos they watch on Youtube.
School's going great. Warrior's at the preschool level and Wolfman's at the kindergaten level. Little kids are sponges, man! And the boys love school, too. They're always so eager to show us what they've been learning around the house or outside. And Wolfman's just a good big brother, too. He'll grab his little brother's hand, when they get near the road, and tell him to wait. That they have to look and listen for cards first. It's the sweetest thing.
